Biography

I was born in Southern California and, nearly being a native Angelino, have no need to live there. Consequently, I spent most of my life moving north. California to Alabama to Seattle to Missouri. Then, I left home and went to college at the University of Missouri at Columbia. Fast forward 10 years to get a B.S. in Zoology and an M.S. in Veterinary Physiology. Times being what they were I went into software and moved to Boston.

 

I became serious about writing in 1972. I attended Clarion SF Workshop in 1978. When I left biology for computing it was the idea that the programming would support my writing habit. After all, it was just a 9-to-5 job, right? (Gales of hysterical laughter.)

 

That was 1979.

 

Now, Iím a software engineer working NASA Neat Stuff.

 

Iíve had about thirty or so short stories published in various places and two novels. (See Bibliography).
